We want to help people in our community and around the world know and follow Jesus. We have partnerships with a number of missionaries and missions organizations around the world. Check back in the near future for profiles and information about our missionary partnerships.
Oakwood sent a team of 20 people on a mission trip to Guatemala from June 19-29, 2014. This was the first international mission trip from Oakwood Community Church. The team went into the mountains of Zacapa, Guatemala and the surrounding area to deliver food and other necessities to people in remote, poverty-stricken villages. We visited six villages, where we fed and played with the children, sharing God’s love and teaching them the good news of Jesus Christ. We also helped with ongoing construction of two medical clinics in the area. We partnered with Tim Fix and Hope for Tomorrow, a local organization that has been leading mission work in Guatemala for over ten years.
On Sunday, July 20th, the team led the worship service at Oakwood, sharing about the trip and the work God had done in and through us. You can watch a slideshow from the trip, or the entire worship service from Sunday, July 20th below.
